‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ to Focus on Skywalker Kids?
‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ will reportedly have the involvement of Harrison Ford, who will return as Han Solo but now it’s looking more and more likely that Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) will return as well. A new report is claiming that ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ will focus on the kids of Luke, Han and Leia and their new adventures.
Showbiz 411 is reporting that ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ will bring back Ford, Hamill and Fisher for the film with the focus of the new trilogy centering on their children.
In the expanded universe, Han Solo and Leia marry and have three children – boy and girl twins named Jaina and Jacen Solo and a young baby named Anakin. Luke Skywalker married Mara Jade and they have one son together, Ben Skywalker, who trained with Jacen Solo. And if that’s not enough ‘Star Wars’ family tree for you, Jacen and Jaina have a new Wookie sidekick named Lowbacca, who is Chewbacca’s nephew. Got all that?
The Jaina and Jacen Solo storyline has always seemed to make the most sense for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ because of the storyline already laid out in the books. While Jaini becomes a Jedi student, Jacen turns to the dark side of the force and eventually becomes Darth Caedus. (There’s also room for Ailyn Vel, Boba Fett’s daughter, who plays a crucial role in this storyline.)
So what do you think? The last trilogy focused on young ‘Star Wars’ characters sometimes to comical effect. Should the new trilogy start fresh or continue the legacy?
